Posted: 05 Oct 2012 04:00 AM PDTHere's the latest example of how ridiculously immature both Fatah and Hamas are.
Yesterday, Fatah released a short video that they claim proves that Hamas collaborates with Israel, with a known West Bank Hamas member Mahmoud Ramahi along with MP Ahmed Attoun shaking hands with an Israeli soldier.
Fatah spokesman Ahmed Assaf said "The videos leaked to the media, as well as information confirmed to us, prove beyond doubt that MPs and leaders of Hamas in the West Bank are collaborating with the occupation authorities initiated by their leaders in the Gaza Strip and abroad directly or through intermediaries." Assaf added that this Hamas "collaboration" is offensive to the Palestinian public and the Arab and Muslim world.
Hamas is now lashing out at Fatah, saying that the video is taken out of context. Apparently it was taken when Israel released Hamas prisoner Abdel Rahman Zeidan from the Ofer prison last Sunday.
Hamas is threatening to sue the video production company.
This is the level of discourse that Fatah and Hamas engage in all the time, and it is just one tiny proof that Palestinian Arab leaders are simply unable to act like adults.
(For some reason no one in Israel is demanding that the Israeli guard be fired for shaking hands with Hamas members. Must be proof of Zionist weakness, in the bizarre mindset of Palestinian Arabs.)
